John de Thorp and "William de Morwode, clerk, that Robert Malet 
formerly founded the said priory, and that it is subject to the abbey of 
Bernay {Berniaco) in Normandy, as a cell thereof, so that neither a prior 
nor a monk ought to be made therein without the assent of the abbot of 
Bernay, and that Robert Malet and his heirs took nothing of the goods of 
the priory upon -voidance, but used to place a gatekeepei' at the priory gate 
in sign of their lordship, who was maintained by the priory during the 
voidance, and who ought to receive 5s. or an ox at the installation of the

parliament of Estaunford, in the third year of the king's reign, for which 
the count bound himself to Robert Elis of Great Yarmouth, who became 
surety for payment of the same to the said merchants, and between William 
de Brawod and John de Turnay, the count's envoys sent by him to I'equest 
the king to make inquisition concerning the said arrests, so that the count 
might cause tile said merciiautsto be satisfied for what was still due to them. 
It was found by inquisition that goods to the value of 70/. 17a". Od. were 
arrested at Great Yarmouth, in the fourth year of the king' reign, and were

Sancho, sent to the late king John, the judge of his court, and Bunriissalvus

Bayonne sent Arnald de Villari and John Dardii', their fellow-citizens, with

afterwards bore special letters of the king to king Ferdinand for the 
recovery of his goods, and sought for the execution of the ordinance above- 
said from those appointed by the king and by the king of Castile to super- 
intend the execution of the ordinance, the commissaries of the king of 
Castile appointed with the king's commissaries for the execution of the 
ordinance at Fuentarrabia (Fontem Rabidum) did nothing in execution of 
the said ordinance, as appears by the letters patent of Gaillard de Sancto 
Paulo, knight, lord of Seres (de Sero), and of Master Peter Arnaldi de Vico, 
the king's commissaries : wherefore the king orders the said sheritf to 
arrest goods of the men of the power of the king of Castile to the value of

To the sheriffs of London. Whereas, at the complaint of Philip de 
Leghton, burgess of Ipswich, that the castellan of tlie town of St. Valery 
had arrested and detained a ship of his called ' la Creadc-,' of the value of 
50/., in the port of St. Valery, the late king frequently requested the count 
of Dreux, lord of that (own,' to do justice to Philip far the ship and tackle 
and for his damages, which amounted to 40/. sterling, but the count did 
nothing in the matter, as appears by the testimony of the bailiffs and 
burgesses of Ipswich by their letters patent; by reason whereof Philip 
recovered, by divers of the late king's writs to the sheriffs of London and 
Southampton, 20/. 8s. lOrf. from men of the count's power, aa appears by 
the return of the writs in the late king's chancery ; the king lately ordered 
them to arrest goods of the men of St. Valery to the value of 69/. 11*. 2d., 
the remainder of the sum due to Philip, and they have returned that they 
have arrested a ship, value 15 marks, half of which belongs to Waleric le 
Joune and half to Matthew Bryan, burgesses of St. Valery, and the tackle 
and cargo (frettum) of the same, value four marks; and Waleric and 
Matthew afterwards asserted in chancery that the arrest was unjustly made, 
the said Philip asserting the contrary ; whereupon the king ordered the 
ship, tackle, and cargo to be delivered lo Waleric and Mntthew by the 
mainprize of Philip de Beauveys, Roger de Lenn, and James Pe de Lu, of 
London, who mainperned in chancery to answer ibr the above 19 marks to 
the said Philip de Leghton if they were adjudged to him : the king, as it 
does not appear to him th.at the process in this matter begun and approved 
in the late king's time, as appears by the rolls of his chancery, ought to be 
cancelled (irritari) or annulled without deliberation of greater counsel, 
now orders the said sherifis to compel the mainpernors to satisfy Philip 
for the said 19 marks, in part satisfaction of the aforesaid 69/. [1 \s. 2c/.],

it appears by inquisition taken by the said escheator that William and Ada 
his wife were jointly enfeoffed of these lands by Richard de Keston, clerk, 
by fine levied in the late king's court, and that the lands are not held of the 
king but of divers other lords, and that Ada continued her joint-seisin

goods of Englishmen seized in Flanders, and that the count should acquit the 
said king and his father against the Flemish merchants, and if the value of 
the goods seized in England were insufficient for the payment of the English- 
men for their goods seized in Flanders, then the count should make good the 
deficiency, with like clause for restitution by the king in case the English 
goods seized in Flanders were insufficient to satisfy the Flemish merchants 
for their goods seized in England ; and it was found by inquisitions that the 
goods of the merchants of England, Ireland and Wales seized by the 
countess were worth 4,000/. sterling more than the Flemish goods seized in 
England ; which sum the count did not pay, although often requested to do 
so ; wliereupon the late king ordered that 730 marks in which the mayor and 
community of the city of London were bound to certain burgesses of Ghent 
on behalf of Henry III., which lie found deposited in a certain place, should 
be distributed to thi; said English merchants in part payment of the above

dft Beton, count of Flanders, to do justice herein ; and the present king 
wrote to him requesting him to do speedy justice to the said citizens : 
because the said count has not done justice to them, a.s appears by the 
letters patent of the mayor and community of the city of London, the king 
now orders the sheriffs to arrest goods of the men of Ghent to the value of

Eiveres, Jolm de Vernoun, Robert Vintcent of Coggeshale, Simon Poyntel, 
John de Tendrynge, and John Flemyng, of that county, to have them

maliciously returned before the said justices that they were not found in

distrained them to repair the palisade and causeway contrary to what they 
had been used to do, not permitting them to have what they have been 
used to have for the repair of the same in times past ; whereupon the king 
ordered William de Ormesby and Robei t de Reydon to enquire into the 
premises in the bailiff's presence, and they found by inquisition that the 
men and tenants of Burnedissh and Tadyngton ought to repair 66J perches 
of the palisade and 80 I'eet of the causeway, the men and tenants of Badym- 
ham ought to repair 40 perches of the palisade and 61 feet of the causeway,

men and tenants of Laxfeld 40 perches and 100 feet respectively, the men 
and tenants of Stradebroke 57 perches and 64 feet respectively, and that 
they have been wont to do so time out of mind by reason of their tenements 
held in those towns at fee-farm of the honour aforesaid by demise from a 
duke of Louvaine, formerly lord of that honour, who first ordained the 
enclosure of the park, and that the said men and tenants have been wont to 
have from that time for the repair of the palisade and causeway timber out of 
oak delivered by the bailiff of the honour out of the park to be felled at 
their cost, and that they have been wont to take and dig soil in the land of 
the honour near the causeway by delivery of the bailiff, and to take brush- 
wood unfit for timber together with the remainder of the felled trees that 
were not required for the repairs, and that the perches and feet afore- 
said are insufficient to enclose the park or repair the causeway because the 
township of Keltou ought to repair 40 perches of the aforesaid palisade and 
70 feet of the causeway, and the men of the soke of Eye ought to repair 
54^ perches of the palisade and 120 feet of the causeway, and the lords of

Memorandum, that Sir William de Crekelad and Sir John de Norhamp- 
ton, Conversi chaplains, and other Conversi exhibited a petition before the 
king and his covmcil in parliament at London, in the eighth year of his 
reign, complaining of Sir Adam de Osgodeby, keeper of the house of the 
Conversi, London, in this form : The said chaplains, who are charged and 
sworn from their infancy to pray for the king and his ancestors, and the 
other Conversi of London who are houseless {desherbergez), say that whereas 
Henry III. gave in common by his charter to all Conversi and all to be 
converted and housed the plot where the court of the Conversi is inhabited, 
Sir Adam de Osgodeby, their keeper, ought [to allow] them their habita- 
tions in their said close, but that he keeps them out and harbours his clerks 
there, and allows strangers and horses to be harboured there, and that he 
has demised some of their tenements where they might be housed to strangers 
for the term of three lives by their common seal without their assent, to the 
prejudice of the king, to whom the tenements ought to revert after their 
day ; wherefore they pray that such demises shall be annulled, and that they 
may have their harbourments in their said close, because if they fall ill or 
become enfeebled they have no place where they may dwell or have refuge 
or easement of right except in the common close specially built for them 
and to be inhabitated solely by them, and as the matins Hnd masses of the 
said chaplains, of the alms of the kings their founders, are worth as much as 
ihe pater nosters of laymen. French. 

Which petition having been exhibited, it was decided by the council that 
it should be delivered to the chancellor as principal keeper of all the liospitals 
or almshouses founded of the king's alms, so that he might do what he should 
think fit concerning it. Having inspected the petition, the chancellor sent 
Robert de Bardelby and Robert de Askeby, clerks of the chancery, to the 
house of the Conversi to enquire into the above allegations, and to certify 
him concerning the same. The said Robert and Robert, having called 
before them the aforesaid parties on Monday the feast of St. Tiburtius and 
Valerian, in the chapel of the Conversi, made inquisition by all the Conversi 
dwelling in the house and others then present ; whereby it was found, by 
the oath of the Conversi, that the said William never had a fixed residence 
within the house, but that he had access to the house in the time of Sir 
Henry le Aumener, late keeper of the same, sometimes passing the night in 
the house, but that the said keeper prohibited him from dwelling there or 
being received therein, and deprived him of his wages, on account of divers 
crimes whereof he defamed the whole community of the Conversi then con- 
versant in the house, and whereof he accused them by letters to the keeper, 
all the Conversi having afterwards purged themselves of the same before the 
keeper. They also say that Adam, the present keeper, allowed the said 
William his wages of his special grace against the will and assent of the 
Conversi. They say that he is not fit to dwell within the house, and that 
they will not permit this in any wise, and, in answfer to the question 
whether he was fit to receive his wages, they say that this depends upon the 
grace of the keeper. As to the two tenements, they say that they were

demised by the common assent of all the Conversi and almost (quasi) 
against the will of the keeper, and (hat William assented and wrote the 
notes of the demise, and that they were demised for the profit of the house, 
as they are demised at a higher ferm than before, and the tenants have to do 
necessary repairs, which would have to be done at the cost of the house 
if they were not so demised. Nothing is done against the said John, 
because he did not sue. And the inquisitors assigned to William the 
morrow as day before the chancellor to hear and receive answer and 
judgment. Afterwards the chancellor decided that William should have 
nothing of the contents of his petition, but that he should be remitted to 
his keeper to be castigated for his false complaint according to the keeper's 
discretion. And the chancellor ordered that the present memorandum 
should be enrolled in the rolls of chancery, and should be placed upon the 
files amongst the memoranda of the chancery.

William produced a deed of her late husband containing waiTanty, and

hold in peace a third of the manor of Wresel and of the moiety of the manor 
of Erghes, and that Eleanor should have their value out of the heir's lands in

Bum to be allowed to her out of the 400Z. yearly rendered by her for the

the king ordered the sheriff of York to certify him of the extent of the 
manor of Wresel and of the moiety of the manor of Erghes, and of the lands 
that he had assigned and delivered to Eleanor for her dower thereof and of 
the manors of Claxeby and Slotheby; who returned that, by virtue of a writ of 
judgment witnessed by the said William de Bereford addressed to Nicholas
